‘Future captain’, ‘Brilliant news’ – fans delighted at Arsenal’s latest contract extension

SoccerLens at related • 0 views

Supporters are delighted that Arsenal defender Rob Holding is the latest player to sign a contract extension. The 22-year-old has yet to nail down a starting place in the first-team but could have a bright future at the Emirates now he’s set to stay in London for another four years.

Arsenal fans haven’t seen a lot of Holding this season, with the defender making just seven Premier League starts, but he could become more of a regular in 2018/19.

Done deal: Arsenal confirm defender extends contract

SoccerLens at related • 0 views

Arsenal confirm defender Rob Holding has extended his contract until 2023.

The 22-year-old has struggled for game time this season but is clearly an important part of the Gunners’ future, as Per Mertesacker is retiring in the summer and Shkodran Mustafi has struggled for consistency.

Holding joined Arsenal from Bolton Wanderers in 2016 and has gone on to make 42 appearances in all competitions.

It's been an odd 2017, hasn't it?

Will he stay/should he go being one of the main talking points (AW/AS/MO/JW/HB etc). Team played some great football, some lamentable football, some boring football and some football which got you out of your seat marvelling at the sheer ingenuity of the interplay.

The Hammers. Blowing bubbles. The Academy. Bobby, Geoff and Martin. Trevor's header at Wembley.

All a long time ago. Nothing remains of that West Ham. Now they are just another industrious, unimaginative team. Allardyce and Moyes. Pragmatism. Andy Carroll.

This doesn't mean they cannot beat us, as they showed at the weekend such tactics can work.

BFG to Return?

Under normal circumstances the prospect of WBA arriving at The Ems when we are in desperate need of three points would bring a smile especially as despite the furore we are unbeaten in 4 games and have 8 points from 12.

With the end of the transfer window looming and many supporters calling for Arsene to reinforce the squad with new additions, I thought I'd look atthe age range of Arsenal's current EPL squad including some on loan. Obviously age isn't the prime criterion when assessing a player, but it is the significant indicatorin terms oflongevity and therefore team development.

Mesut Ozil's first half performance in Arsenal's hugely impressive 4-1 win over Liverpool will live long in the memory, and not just for Gunners fans.

Get off Mertesacker’s back

Arsenal Arsenal at related • 0 views

I am fed up with people looking at Mertesacker as the man responsible for all Arsenal's defensive woes. I am also bored by the continual moaning about BFG's lack of leadership on the pitch.

Let's start with his defensive ability. Someone recently wrote on the blog that BFG may have over 100 caps for Germany and is a World Cup winner but that does not make him a quality centre back.

Monaco: Match report and Player Ratings

When the draw was made someone (no names mentioned but it was MickyDidit), told me that he would not go to Monaco because the away leg would be a dead rubber he was right :-(

Essentially we were rubbish all over the pitch. It is all well and good Mr Wenger being furious at the lack of professionalism evidenced by having 10 players in the opposition half in the 93rd minute just after scoring what could have been a tie-saving goal, but who trains these blokes?

Arsenal season review 2014-15

When I wrote my season preview back in August, I suggested that Arsenal would need to improve markedly this season just to stay still. It was oddly prescient of a debate which has been playing out over the last few weeks over whether Arsenal did indeed improve over the course of 2014-15, compared to the previous season.

The season's last international break is behind us and the final bookmark of 2014-15 is lovingly removed. The curtain is looming as we skilfully finger the riff to ‘The Final Countdown' on our air keyboards. (They're a thing). Arsene Wenger recently remarked that "95% of the players will still be here next season.

Good day to you all.

It's quite something when the biggest story of the day is how Jon Moss is going to referee the FA Cup final in May. The former Culture Club drummer got the nod over Mark Clattenburg, much to the surprise of everyone. Including, it seems Mark Clattenburg, who was expecting to be in charge of the game.

Interlull: Some thoughts on the defence

Morning all, and welcome to the Interlull.

It does feel like a particularly unwelcome one given the momentum we have going right now, but on the other hand it may give a few of them some time to rest and recuperate. Francis Coquelin has done enough to become an integral part of this team but not so much that he's away on international duty.

It’s Villa in the final + Debuchy & Mertesacker

Morning all, the dust settles on an FA Cup weekend and it turns out it's going to be Aston Villa in the final. Brendan Rodgers's glowing shark teeth weren't scaring Tim Sherwood's men yesterday, and a goal from Fabian Delph helped Villa do Liverpool's dishes.

On a very basic level I'd be happier playing Villa than the Scousers in the final.

Paulista on his way?

Arsenal Arsenal at related • 0 views

Dredging through Newsnow and the newspapers it seems that there is a strong likelihood that the Brazilian is coming.

Paulista is not in the Villarreal squad which is a good sign.

Apparently so is Kevin Grosskreutz from Borussia Dortmund. A 26 y.o. defender who can play any position across the back-line and is available for €5m which in today's insane transfer fees is just a pile of M & M's.
